So much wrong in this post I don't know where to start.
First, you don't have to tab target Pain. Make a mouseover macro. All I do is put my cursor over a nameplate and hit the hotkey with that macro. It applies pain (and touch the same way) without switching targets. If you have tidyplates or something similiar you can see the dots ticking on your dot targets. Very easy way to multidot.
Second: unless you are in that very (very very) narrow window where sacrificing int for haste is worthwhile, Int is always your best stat. Sim your character lol. Int is worth much more to me than haste. It's not even comparable.
Third: there is plenty of gear that is itemized great for us. If you get some unlucky drops, well, it happens, but this tier is loaded with plenty of haste pieces.
Last, if I was 40K+ behind anybody in a raid in the same gear I would delete my toon. That is not a shadowpriest needs a buff problem, that is learning how to play your toon issue.
We are not perfect, and could use some things. But we are not broken. Show me a log where you played well and were 40K dps behind every other class. That is just ridiculous.
And our set bonuses suck. That's one of the reasons there is a disparity. Compare our set bonuses to the lock tier. They get a huge increase in damage versus us. But that happens.
There is so much wrong with THIS post and I'll start right here. #1 There is no difference between tabbing, hovering or pointing and clicking. We lose dps every time we stop dpsing to dot with an underpowered spell. You're a fool if you think your macro changes the dynamic.
#2 Taking the sim route will leave you playing Naxx for the rest of your MOP gaming experience. Rather than using outdated tools perhaps you should do some real calculations based on your current toons' stats. If you did you would see haste is a sPriests #1 stat and it far outweighs intel and crit. Don't come at me with a cookie cutter response until you show me you have done this.
#3 If you think the sPriest current state of gear drops is balanced I refer you back to point #2. Learn how to do some math and stop depending on tools created for WoLK.
#4 When you start telling people to delete their toon because you feel self empowerment by being a mediocre player who settles for the best of the worst it says nothing more than your attitude sucks and you have no clue how to play your priest.
Using a mouseover macro is more streamlined and faster than tab targeting..this is just common sense.
Simming is a tool, and a useful one. I'd be more interested in how you determined haste is always stronger than INT when the entire theorycrafting community says otherwise.
We have twice as many drops as all other cloth casters lol. If anyone has room to complain about itemization it is locks and mages.
I didn't tell you to delete your priest, which you aren't posting on btw. I said I would delete MINE if I was sucking to the point I was holding my raid back.
I'm not going to respond to your personal attacks because they are off topic and insulting. You can clearly see from my armory that I am totally only clearing wrath content lol. We clear all normal modes easily and would be clearing heroics as well if we could keep real life at bay, which is more important to me than raiding.
I'm not going to argue with you anymore. I'll go have fun playing my priest while you continue to nerdrage over yours.
